Everest featured the creative direction and 13 song score of composer Charlie Wan, set to a fictional story of triumph, co-wrote and directed and by Charlie Wan, Lulu Ward, and myself, Kurt Nelson Peloquin.
Everest was a massively collaborative, mixed media, multi-sensory experience hosted in Juniper Jones (www.JuniperJones.tv) penthouse studio along the East River in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The original 13 song score was played live for a packed house, and featured guest performances by vocalist Danielle Parente, accompaniment by GHST and GUITARS, with dance by Gregory Dolbashian and Loni Landon of the Playground, live narration by Lulu Ward, with emceeing and program direction by me (Kurt Nelson Peloquin). With intricate set design by artist May Lin Legoff, 3D video projection mapping by Max Nova and Dawn of Man, sound design by Tomas Del Ray, BTS cinematography by Cameron Michael and Sean Biffar (in-post), lighting by Nic Smith, and production support by Kate Power, Rae Donovan, Scott Parenteau, Katie Calcaterra, Mari Shten, Katia Slottke, Michael Drucker, and Maura Siobhan, this was a true example of the power of uniting great people.
